Having cats and rabbits ourselves, we know and understand the difficulty of arranging pet care for a planned holiday or an unexpected night away. After a poor experience with a local pet sitter who focussed more on dog walking rather than cat care (though advertised both!), we quickly realised how important it was for families in the same situation as us to find someone who focused on these smaller animals rather than the big ones! With our love for cats & small animals, and the commitment to ensure they receive the best care possible whilst their owners are away, we decided to set up ‘Karen’s Cat Care’.

‘Karen’s Cat Care’ is solely run by myself, Karen Labbett, with help from my husband on the odd occasion I am not available. We have both had cats and other small animals in our lives since we were young. You can be assured of a personal, reliable service. Testimonials, small business insurance and DBS/CRB checks are provided for your peace of mind.


After taking a career break as an IT manager to start a family, Karen setup her first business – a special occasion cake company in 2008. An ideal home business fitting around the needs of a young family. After some encouragement from a close family friend, and with her love of cats, Karen started Karen’s Cat Care in 2014. Karen decided to close her cake company in 2016 so she could fully concentrate on providing local cat care and offering advice looking after new and existing cats. The success of the business comes from a love for cats and the provision of a high quality, bespoke, customer-focused service.
